When tissue becomes injured, th body’s first response is to deliver platelets which are packed with biological growth and healing factors. It is these platelets that initiate repair and attract stem cells into the area of damage.

PRP is a simple process using a small sample of your own blood, which is drawn and placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. The concentrated PRP injection is then delivered into and around the point of injury to amplify facilitation of natural self healing mechanisms.
